On Wednesday evening, Manager Will Funderberg ‘09 and Executive Director Courtney Ramey of Jabian Consulting met with Davidson students to discuss the Atlanta-based strategic management and technology consulting firm. Founded in 2006, Jabian Consulting works with Fortune and mid-market, high-growth clients across multiple industries. Funderberg noted that an intern should expect to work in the Charlotte branch, which opened in September and currently consists of just two employees.
Because of the company’s relatively small size (slightly under 100 employees), an intern can expect to gain experience working with senior-level employees, as well as real-world experience on projects within market offerings. Jabian focuses on six core market offerings: Human Capital Management, Business Strategy, Technology Execution, Technology Optimization, Customer Interaction, and Operational Excellence. Beyond that, the firm emphasizes a no-travel model and investment in the local community. Perhaps it is the combination of these attributes that has led to Jabian’s recognition both locally and nationally as one of the Best Places to Work, Fastest Growing Companies, and for its local community involvement.
After walking students through a pro bono case study involving the Technology Association of Georgia, Funderberg outlined the characteristics the company seeks in an intern. If you are community-oriented, practical, diligent, and comfortable with ambiguity (due to the extremely small staff at the Charlotte office), be sure to submit your resume through WildcatLink before the deadline today, January 23rd at midnight. Jabian will return to Davidson on February 5th for on-campus interviews, which will consist of thirty minutes of behavioral questions, followed by a thirty-minute case interview.
Thank you so much to Will Funderberg and Courtney Ramey for taking time to speak with Davidson students. We look forward to having them back on February 5th!
